from Bondo


It is a challenging trip, which, if done in a day, requires a good training, but offers really great satisfactions, both for the wild environment in the presence of the Cengalo and the Badile, and for the spectacular skiing. It can be evaluated as BSA (good ski-alpinist) because you have to climb the crevasses of the Vadrec of the Bondasca. The attached track describes a one-day ascent, but if you want to break it in two days you can sleep at the hut Sciora, well visible and signposted.


You reach Bondo (CH) coming from Chiavenna (SO) in the direction of Passo Maloja. You park near the church where there is a clearing.



From the parking area a toll road departs (toll machine) that almost reaches the Alpe Laret. However, the road is cleared late in the season... so we have made the walk.
